Texan witches often cursed their enemies with the Tex-Mex Hex—causing them to weep ranchero sauce, sprout burritos on their arms, and turn everything they touched into refried beans. Celebrate a more benevolent form of this delectable magic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $22 worth of Tex-Mex fare at Terlingua Mexican Grill's Bellaire Boulevard or Studemont Street location. Named for the Rio Grande meeting point of three area languages, Terlingua’s menu honors both Texan and Native American influences with its signature style of Mexican cooking. The Gulf seafood ceviche opens meals with a citrus twist as lime-marinated shrimp, scallops, and mahi swap flavors with jalapeño and cilantro partners ($10). Trained tongues will detect hints of coffee and ancho in the cowboy-inspired Texas chili burger, which sits atop a bed of buttermilk-battered onion rings like a king sitting on an edible hammock ($10). Terlingua's local pride also comes through in its ingredients, with the tequila-lime redfish ($18) featuring redfish netted in Texas angling-capital Palacios.
